Hi Guys,

Been using a ARB Compressor fo 5 years never a prob. Over the weekend it pumped up 1 out of 4 tires and stopped. Checked power all OK to the relay. 10 minutes later all OK. Do they have a thermal cut out?

Wayne,

I take it that the thermal fuse is internal in the motor, and is hidden in the depth of the stator.

Here is a link to the ARB Service manual.
On the last page there is an internal link to the Wiring diagram and also the electrical fault diagnosis.
I do not believe they have a thermal cut - out as standard fitment.
ARB Service Manual

Make sure your Adobe Reader is set to open pages in web browser, otherwise the internal pdf links will not function

Hope this helps.

My mark 1 model is about 8 years old and is still working fine. I was assured at the time by the ARB salesperson that it does not have a thermal cutout.... "doesn't need one" ......?
Could fry and egg on it at times but it keeps on keeping on.

Hi JD

We have one of those red compressors - red devil or something. It managed all 8 tyres in the Kimberley, but further into the trip it started overheating and cutting out, getting progressively worse - eventually to the extent of being unusable. Sounds similar to yours.

Problem not resolved as yet.

Hi JD,
I'm not sure if this will help, hope so.
I've been having a similar problem with my second hand ARB unit which seems to have a problem with one of the valve stems on my tyres, pumps the other three up without problem. When using the unit today I had the stop start, pushed the chuck hard onto the stem and held it in place, no problems in finishing the job. May have to invest in a new chuck.

Cheers,
Wayne.

JD I had the same problem with my indicators on my car, on off on off, I tracked it down to the relay also.

I removed the relay and "Viola" they now stay on all the time. LOL

The devil made me say it.
Cheers Colin.

My ARB compressor that came with my lockers got a bit lazy and after pumping for a while would slow down to a stop... I pulled the compressor unit down and refreshed all the connections and cleaned out the motor of dust etc and gave the bearings a bit of a oil and free up..... now it runs better than when it was new out of the box.
